"Young players should begin by renting. Consider renting well-known brands like Yamaha, Gemeinhardt, and Armstrong. To help smaller players hold the instrument, a curved headjoint called a ""candy cane"" headjoint is available. More advanced players might want to condsider purchasing a flute with an extended B foot joint and open-hole keys."
In home flute lessons are an extremely convient option for busy students and parents. The student saves time and money and learns a new skill without having to leave the comfort of home!
Our teachers create a customized lesson plan for every student. Topics covered during Musika's flute lessons may include, but are not limited to: correct embouchure formation; how to appropriately shape your lips to blow into the instrument, how to develop a solid tone in low and high registers, how to hold, assemble, and clean the instrument properly, fingerings for notes, and techniques for developing quick finger action for passages, different articulation: how to slur or tongue cleanly, and most importantly, how to have fun playing the flute!
Many of our adult flute students are complete beginners, while others are former flutists now returning to an old hobby. We also have students who are more advanced and are looking to take their skills in both advanced classical repertoire and/or jazz improvization to the next level. Our teachers have proven methods to get you the results you desire.
The flute is the smallest instrument in the band and is therefore easy for young players to transport and hold. Musika recommends beginning the flute around 7 or 8 when the student is old enough to proper hold the instrument and press the keys. The flute does take significant amount of air so the player does need to have the lung capacity to produce a supported sound.
